Toilet theme park officially opens in South Korea

Former mayor dedicated life to better porcelains

SUWON, South Korea - Central Florida may be flush with theme parks, but South Korea may now be No. 2.

The world's first toilet theme park recently opened in Suwon, South Korea, and was built to honor former Mayor Sim Jae-duck, who was said to be born in his grandmother's toilet.

Sim, who died in 2009, dedicated his life to promote cleaner and better porcelains and even constructed a toilet-shaped house.

The theme park displays different style loos from numerous time periods from around the world.

The city also holds the "Golden Poop" art festival with toilet-themed artwork.
